After the Cowboys selected Bobby Carpenter with the 18th overall pick in this years draft, it was assumed that he would compete with Al Singleton at strong outside linebacker. However, as camp has progressed, Carpenter has been moved to inside 'backer. Carpenter seems happy to learn a new position.
Parcells seems to like versatility in his players and thinks that Carpenter, even as a rookie, can learn and make the transition.
Mickey Spags writes about the "big" controversy over T.O.'s injured hammy. Personally, I think the media is making too big of a deal about this. So what if he's bringing in his personal trainers and a "healing" chamber. So what if he declares himself unfit to play this Saturday. The media just wants to make a mountain out of a molehill and Parcells is right in telling them to back off. Mickey says it the best.
Even if the guy behaves, the team has to put up with all the media crap. I guess the price you pay for having T.O. on your team.
